3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ein recht klassisches Dunkles mit Malz, erdigen Aromen und ein paar Nüssen. Recht süffig und ausgewogen in der Perlung. Durchaus gut für einen zweiten Test.

Beer pours out of the bottle in a deep dark brown (light milky) colour with steady creamy low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of malt and nuts. Taste of dark malt, nuts, dark grains, straw, torf and woods. Light earthy-caramel hints. Nice and smooth to drink, quaffable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is medium brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Surprisingly little character compared to their Zwickl and Lager. Not much in the nose and the body is light and watery. A bit on the sweet side, kind of limp and sugary in the mouth. Dang.
